“Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.” – Norman Cousins
Time has a thought provoking article up online about what happens to your online life after you die.
I have thought about this myself and actually, it is one reason I keep my blog up here even if I dont post that much. I havent thought much beyond that and the article linked to above did make me think a bit more.
If I should die, suddenly or not, and never have had the opportunity to meet and know my daughter again, this blog will remain for her to review if and when she would want to know. I find an odd sort of comfort in that. I am also very concious of who I read, comment on, what I say, what pictures I post, etc. elsewhere online. Sure this is wise for professional reasons but again when thinking about my daughter, what would I want her to know, see, etc. if I died tommorrow?
My son have memories of me, have a life with me, have photos and momentos. But what would my daughter have should she want it years after I am gone?
Just the scraps I have left behind online.
